Launching a New Policy
Once a policy has been approved and adopted by campus decision-makers, it is imperative that the campus takes the time necessary to plan and prepare for a successful launch. Campuses typically take six months to one year to plan and prepare their campus for the implementation of a new smoke or tobacco free policy. A campus might announce their intentions to go smoke or tobacco free and then actually launch the new policy in the Fall of the next year.
Campuses typically take six months to one year to plan and prepare their campus for the implementation of a new smoke or tobacco-free policy.
To help with implementation a new taskforce can be developed. The taskforce should include representatives that can help with policy launch, including, but not limited to:
- Academic Affairs
- Student Government
- Student Health Center
- Student Veterans Center
- Facilities and Maintenance
- Communications and Technical Support
- Campus Administration/ Student Services
- Student Affairs
- Human Resources
